SouthlakeRx: In Memory of Cheryl Sutton
Welcome to the Pharmacy Department's fundraising page!
Your support will help Southlake transform lives right here in our community.
This run or walk is in loving memory of our dear friend and colleague Cheryl Sutton (1956-2018)
On January 6th, the world lost a truly radiant woman. Cheryl Sutton (nee Pedersen) was a bright shining light in the lives of many, always positive and grateful. "How lucky are we?" was exclaimed with every new experience. Cheryl Sutton built a reputation as a longstanding pharmacist, champion athlete excelling in tennis and golf, avid traveller with favourites being Lake of Bays and Fiji, and true friend to all.
She was born in Four Falls, New Brunswick and grew up on a beautiful and prosperous potato farm. She was daughter of Nickolaj and Marion Pedersen. She studied at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS earning a degree in Pharmacy. This led to a forty year career of which she was always proud. She continued her dedicated work up to her final days at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, ON.
Cheryl always demonstrated deep love, loyalty, and support to her family.. She was present for every important milestone, overflowing with warmth and encouragement. Cheryl is sorely missed by her husband David; her two daughters, Krista and Kimberly; her grandchildren Frederick and Matilda; and her sisters; Mary, Joyce, Joan, Dorothy, and Nikki. Her dear friends and extended family are too numerous to list.
It all comes down to kindness. Cheryl approached others with an open heart, seeing the best in everyone. She would always engage with strangers, truly interested in their stories. Throughout her time, she built lasting relationships with innumerable people of all walks of life around the globe. She was known for her sun-hat wearing, animal-loving, vegetable-scrubbing, nature-seeking, fair weather-skiing, fastest potato-peeling, out of rhythm-dancing, spritzer-drinking, fun-loving joie de vivre. She will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of all of those who were fortunate enough to have Cheryl in their lives.
